GPS sending you through the Green Swamp.   

It seems that some GPS systems do not give actuate directions to our park. If the directions that the GPS give you advise you to drive though the Green Swamp then there is a possiblity that you will get stuck in the mud. If you are following the GPS directions and it has you turn off on to a dirt road. Stop! Do Not continue. The best directions will keep you on paved roads. See Driving Directions below.

Newest Campsite at Lake Waccamaw State Park

We have finally finished our newest campsite! Campsite 5 is the only one of it's kind at NC State Parks. The campsite is still relatively primitive, but it offers a permanent yurt-style tent on a 16' wide X 32' long platform. It has the same amenities as the other four campsites including a charcoal grill, fire ring, pit toilet nearby, and picnic table. There are two bed platforms inside the yurt-style tent.  Campers will need to supply their own mattresses or sleeping bags for the beds. The maximum capacity is six people.
